I used to work a lodge in Sturgeon Falls when I was a kid. We'd get a sheephead and tell some of the guests it was a big silver bass. They used to take pics in amazement...lol.

.Their was a good video last winter of a sturgeon caught through the hole.No mention there as well as to the release,just lots of Congrats.Correct me if I'm wrong but if they are in season or not the point should be to clarify the release of the fish.Even if fish is in season they should be released for several reasons.

Years ago when I lived in Wahnapitae I fished around Iron Island and caught several blue walleye. Are they still in the lake?

According to records and a book written about North Bay and area (North Words). Yellow pickerel were introduced into the lake through a stocking program in the 1920s by the Lands and Forest Department. W. Harkeness (a biologist) recorded the presence of blue pickerel in 1920. However the overly intensive commercial fishery prior to 1924 really took a beating on the fish. Between 1885 and 1921 229,000 kg of walleye were harvested by the commercial fishery. That's why the pickerel stocking program was introduced into the lake.

Side note: the largest Sturgeon caught was reported to be 292 lbs in 1885.
